Ryan Yamashiro, DDS


In his daily practice, Ryan follows the DentiCal guidelines and provides medically necessary dental care to his patients, including dentures, fillings, crowns, root canals, and more. His patients bond with him because he is direct and honest about the type of treatments he can offer within the scope of the clinic.

Ryan works alongside a great dental team that supports everything he does. He feels fortunate to be associated with such an exceptional group of people who not only make his work very enjoyable, they also help him provide the best dental care possible.

Prior to joining DAP in 2015, Ryan worked at Wellness Dental Care and the Loma Linda School of Dentistry. He’s provided pro bono services and volunteered for a variety of organizations including Lugonia Elementary School in Redlands—where he performed general restorative dentistry procedures on underprivileged pediatric patients—Clinic With a Heart, and CDA Cares which is associated with the California Dental Association.

Ryan is a graduate of Loma Linda University School of Dentistry. He’s originally from Hawaii, which most likely accounts for his love of hiking and surfing.

“I am helping to restore people’s smiles, which also helps build their confidence.”
